If there is fluid leaking from it in the engine bay in front of your tranny, its bad, also check the master cylinder on the floor board conecting your clutch pedal they can both leak brake fluid. Both are very easy to replace.

How do you replace a cylinder on a Chevy S10?

This is a far reaching question that needs more clarification. There are cylinders where the pistons are located. If you have a clutch then you have a clutch master and slave cylinder. On the brakes you have a master cylinder and wheel cylinders. And the beat goes on. You need to distinguish as to which cylinder you are referring.

How do you pump up the clutch in a 1984 Nissan 300 ZX?

If the clutch stays on the floor after you push in the clutch first check to see if you have clutch fluid in the reservoir, if you do then it could just be because the clutch needs bled. If that doesn't do it then maybe your slave cylinder needs bled or replaced. From what I have seen it is generally because the slave cylinder needs replaced. Not to confuse you but the things that make up your clutch system are the clutch master cylinder, the slave cylinder, and the clutch dampner. If it is because the clutch needs bled start with the clutch master cylinder then do the slave cylinder. If it is not because of lack of fluid then check up under the dash and see if the spring on the clutch pedal is attached. Hope that doesn't sound to confusing.

The clutch is gaining and losing compression in a 1989 probe plus leaking wheres the problem?

The clutch has two main parts; the master clutch cylinder and the slave cylinder. Follow the line down from the master cylinder to find the slave. Most of the time the slave needs to be rekitted or replaced and then bled. That should fix it.

The clutch IS supposed to go to the floor. Do you mean why doesn't it release the transmission from the engine. It probably needs to have air bled from the master cylinder and the slave cylinder.

What could be the problem with a 1994 subaru impreza that will barely shift gears seriously all your strength and you have to have the clutch pedal all the way down on the floor so it won't stall out?

A few things occure to me. Something's wrong with your clutch's hydraulic system. Out/low on fluid and needs to be bled. Possible bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder. Possible it just needs to be adjusted but most hydraulic clutches don't adjust so you'll have to check that out. Your clutch has gone out and needs to be replacesd.

How do you fix a loose clutch on 95 miata?

If the answer refers to "it's not engaging completely to shift" it could be: * not enough clutch fluid * slave cylinder clutch, damaged and needs bleeding/repair/replacement * master cylinder clutch, damaged and needs bleeding/repair/replacement First check for fluid, if enough, then bleed the circuit changing to new fluid. If looking at the cylinders, any of them is leaking, it needs repair, repair kits are found at NAPA (USA). it's cheaper than replacement, but if the cylinder is damaged it will leak again soon. Some air in the circuit is enough for not letting the clutch work fully, and with the time the fluid will get water from ambient and that water will evaporate (with heat) creating air pockets. If the answer refer to "side pedal play" you need to remove the pedal clutch assembly to replace the bushings

What is a reasonable price to pay to replace the slave cylinder of a 1992 Ford Ranger?

It varies with what area of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages for estimates. Are you sure it needs to be replaced? I have a 1995 Ranger and the slave cylinder leaked until I was left with no clutch movement. I refilled the reservoir and bled the slave cylinder until the fluid ran clear. At first, the fluid was black, but after a while the fluid cleared up and I never did have to replace the slave cylinder. Try bleeding the cylinder first, and see if that fixes the problem.

You push in the clutch of your 1993 Capri put the car in gear but before you let the clutch out it drives forward Why?

My 91 did the same thing and continued to get worst to point where you can't even get it in gear now with the engine running. If you try to start it in gear the car starts to move. Two things, clutch needs adjusting or as in my case the clutch slave cylinder is worn out. Is the clutch pedal real mushy? That wouuld indicate the slave cylinder is bad. It is located on the driver side firewall and looks like a small brake cylinder.

I need to push the clutch ALL the way to the floor to get into gear. Is there any adjustment in the hydraulic clutch in a 2000 ford F350?

There is no adjustment on your hydraulic clutch. Try pumping (quick stabs on the pedal with your foot) the clutch a few times and then push your clutch all the way in. If the clutch works better after pumping it, your slave cylinder is leaking and needs to be replaced. If there is no difference, you may need to bleed your hydraulic lines - if you have air in there, the air will compress unlike hydraulic fluid and your slave cylinder won't have the full range of motion.

1999 svt contour clutch is totally soft and not engaging what does this mean?

Leak in hydraulic system if so equipped Low fluid level in system Air in system Bad slave cylinder Bad master cylinder Worn clutch disc and needs replacement - from inproper usage

What does it mean if you lose pressure on your clutch?

Can mean a few things. Low hydraulic fluid( brake fluid) in clutch master cylinder, worn clutch disc, needs bleed, slave cylinder slowly losing seal, seals in master cylinder, linkage problem. It could go forever but it is probably just the clutch disk material. To sum it up it means take it to the shop because if you don't know what it could be you most likely don't know how to fix it and it will only get worse to the point where it will not move

What is wrong if there is no resistance in the clutch pedal for 1996 Mitsubishi Galant with manual transmission?

it means you have no clutch fluid(brake fluid) or that you possibly have a leak in the line somewhere or that it needs to be bled.might possibly be the master or slave cylinder.first check the clutch fluid resivor.if its empty then you need to top it off and bleed the line @ the master cylinder then at the slave cylinder.then find out why you have no fluid...the clutch fluid resivor is the smaller one of the two,check inside the car for a leak too,follow the clutch pedal to the firewall and you will see the small rod that goes into your clutch master cylinder,if you have a leak there the master cylinder is bad
